The Marlborough Art Center held the Annual Student Art Show once again this March. 2022.  A total of 824 visitors came during the three weekends of the Show.

These young artists produced an outstanding show under the guidance of their art teachers at each of the schools. These included Beverly Fisher, Carrie Dinunzio, Shelly Osowiecki, Micaela Gradie, and Nicole Van Sicklin from RHAM; Denise Ketterer from Marlborough Elementary; Rose Modzelewski from Hebron Elementary; Susan Giammarco from Gilead Hill Elementary; and Jessica Waine from Andover Elementary. Special thanks go to Susan Hollister who works closely with all these teachers and who organizes the show at the Arts Center every year.

March’s 4th Friday @ the Arts Café

The Marlborough Arts Center features Grass Routes at the “4th Friday at the Arts Cafe” on March 25, 2022 at 7:30  in the beautiful Charles W. Hall Gallery at the Arts Center, 231 North Main Street, Marlborough, CT.

Grass Routes is a Connecticut five-piece bluegrass band. Since 1980 they have been delighting audiences with a repertoire ranging from traditional bluegrass standards to folk and  contemporary songs all performed in their own unique bluegrass style. Skillful instrumental work and strong vocals give Grass Routes their own characteristic sound. Showcasing especially tight harmonies, vocals include duets to four part harmonies. What makes Grass Routes unique  is that each member sings lead. With five lead vocalists, Grass Routes presents a different style and material with each vocal arrangement. Their musical style appeals to audiences of all ages.
